Lexia® Core5® Reading and the Ohio State Test in English Language Arts (OST ELA)
Correlations: Correlations between students’ End Level in Lexia Core5® Reading (Core5) and the end-of-year Ohio State Test in English Language Arts (OST ELA) scale scores were significant and fell in the medium range for grades 3, 4, and 5 (Table 1). Correlations in the medium range are considered strong when evaluating an educational assessment (or program).
Alignments: There was an alignment between end-of-year, grade-level benchmark status in Core5 and performance on the OST ELA. A majority of students (87%) who reached benchmark in Core5 by the end of the year also passed the OST ELA (Table 2).
